This beautifully illustrated book portrays the life of Louis G. Gregory, the grandson of freed slaves, who became an internationally known and loved Baha'i. Combining sensitive text and illustrations, this book journeys from his childhood full of hardship, to his illustrious career as a lawyer, to his wholehearted acceptance of the Baha'i Faith and his tireless devotion to spreading its teachings. This is the story of an extraordinary, selfless individual who dedicated his life to helping others "close their eyes to racial differences and behold the reality of humanity."

"There are more and more books being produced for children about the Baha'i Faith, and its history. This book is still one of my favorites. It tells of the life of one of the most important early believers, Louis Gregory. It addresses the issue of racism in a way that children can understand. The story is well written, and the illustrations are wonderful! This would also be a great book for children to use for a history project, because while it is clearly about an early Baha'i, it is also a great look at early American history." --Shawn Singfield
